    Haha thanks! The french bac offers are really different from unis to unis, for example at Bristol my course asks for A*AA but with the french bac international option they "only" ask for 14/20 whereas UCL who asks for A*AA -A*A*A asks for 16,5 at the french bac.
    I'm sure the extenuating circumstances will be taken into account
    Do you know if your interview is academic or more informal?
    I hope so, Bristol reduced their offer to BBB because of the extenuating circumstances so I'm hoping Manchester will do the same!

    I've been told that it's more for the uni to sell itself than for me to sell myself to them. It's a tour of the campus, lab practical demonstration & then a 'formal' interview. That's all I know, so I'm preparing for anything really. I've organised a mock interview this coming Wednesday just so I can prepare myself a bit

    Wagwarn my Gs, i sent off my applications on Friday applying for:

    Oxford - PPE (St Anne's) AAA
    York - PPE A*AA
    Sheffield - Philosophy & Economics AAB ( ABB + B with EPQ)
    Cardiff - Philosophy & Economics AAB
    UEA - PPE ABB


    My predicted grades are AAAB, so the York and Oxford are a bit speculative but you dont get if you dont try! Has anyone got an offer from any of these Unis yet?

    Good Luck all

    Oh i'm applying to UCL as well! Does your course require an interview there? Mine does, hopefully I'll get one. I'm really excited to visit the unis as I have not had the chance to do so yet as it is far away
